Some Thoughts on the Movie Version of the Watchmen

To be clear on this: I am a big ol' rabid Alan Moore fangirl. I started reading him when he took over Swamp Thing, and I think the Pogo tribute issue he did there to be one of the ten best comics of all time. I don't know what the other nine are. I waited patiently each month while Watchmen was coming out, and my writing sample for grad study in English was this: From Superman to Super-Being: Dr. Manhattan and the Nuclear Sublime. I yearn with all my heart to read Twilight of the Superheroes.

So from that perspective - here's some thoughts on the Watchmen movie. Be aware that this entry possibly contains spoilers.
